WEST UNION/By Phillip Gonzales/West Virginia Record — An Ohio company that owns mineral rights in Doddridge County is suing a lease owner over an alleged breach of contract.

Wilson-Johnson Family LLC filed a complaint Feb. 27 in Doddridge Circuit Court against Alexander Production Co. and Antero Resources Corp., alleging they have stopped producing oil and gas from the property since April 2014.

According to the complaint, Wilson-Johnson has not received royalty payments for the property since December 2014. The suit says the plaintiff will continue to suffer monetarily from a loss of royalty payments.

The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to maintain the lease in force by not producing oil or paying royalties to the plaintiff.

Wilson-Johnson Family seeks trial by jury, rescission of the lease, compensation for lost royalties, loss of use and delay in marketing and development, plus other relief. It is represented by attorneys Edmund L. Wagoner and David E. Goddard of Goddard & Wagoner PLLC in Clarksburg.
